Taking a look now at network technology installed across the area, we see that the most widespread hardwired broadband technology types are Fiber and Cable, with near one hundred percent and practically one hundred percent respectively. TV corporations are usually the source for cable Internet and Wifi service, seeing as they can re-purpose their existing coaxial TV wires — which have already been built out to homes in the area — to connect subscribers to the Internet. Gladwyne-area subscribers to cable service providers like XFINITY from Comcast usually select it due to the reasonably low pricing for workable speeds. (At least, compared to DSL.) Fiber infrastructure is built on newer Fiber-optical transmission lines, which are composed of tiny, thin glass or plastic strands that can transmit binary data as light. Largely thanks tothe prevalence of fiber, broadband download speeds within Gladwyne rank 58.92% above the state average in Pennsylvania. Some fiber connections switch to coaxial cables once in the "last mile." As a result, not all fiber connections offer "gigabit" performance.

HughesNet, in contrast, is available to approximately close to one hundred percent of the population. The fastest download speed advertised for Viasat is up to 35 Mbps. HughesNet offers packages up to 25 Mbps. In general, any speed over 10 megabits per second is enough to stream lower-quality SD videos to devices on WiFi, but becomes problematic for multiple users or high-bandwidth applications such as video chat and etc. See the coverage map below to see broadband options at the census block level.
